I ate in a restaurant one time that advertised "all you can eat"  After
I finished my second plate and asked for more, the waitress said "no". 
I asked how come, and this big burley cook came out of the kitchen and
stated, "'cause that's all you can eat!"  Apparently that was a standing
joke they pulled because the rest of the patrons broke up laughing about
then.
